The Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) has granted the Village of Kiryas Joel a permit that will allow the withdrawal of 612,000 gallons of water per day from the Mountainville Well #1 post and transported it to their Village.

We believe that DEC has granted this permit based on insufficient evaluations of the environmental and ecological impact the withdrawal of this magnitude will have on our residential and town wells, on the emergency water supplies, our firefighting capacity, our local wildlife and future growth of the community.

By taking a minute to sign off on our petition, your support will allow Protect Our Resources Hudson Valley (PORHV) to advocate for the preservation of the Woodbury and Moodna Creek Watershed of Hudson Valley.

We, the residents of Cornwall NY and the surrounding communities, hereby petition the Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) of the State of New York, and our elected government officials, to delay or rescind the permit granted until further studies have been conducted to determine if the withdrawal amount is sustainable by local watershed.
